This is a recommendable selection from Sony’s seven-disc Copland Collection, including not only the ballet suites, the vivid El salón México and the inevitable Fanfare, but also two rarities – the colourful Latin American Sketches and the energetic Outdoor Overture. The performances have occasional rough edges, but under Copland’s spirited direction are always full of life and character. Good sound and helpful notes. Anthony Burton
